I normally take a couple of days to come out of my shell after travelling. When I land I need sleep, downtime, a supermarket for supplies.
I don’t usually take many photos until I’m ready. Sometimes something grabs me though.
It’s similar for holidays and weekends. During the working week I have lots of ideas and things I want to follow up. Then when I have free time, I struggle with the balance between free-wheeling downtime and productive busy downtime.
So here I am walking around Uppsala at the start of my 3-month sabbatical. Facing an epic amount of downtime!
So it was nice when this dark wee character stared me down in the alley and started pulling me out of my shell.
